Dr. Daniel Boyd joined the Oxford Ortho and Sports Medicine team in 2006. Dr. Boyd specializes in sports medicine procedures of the knee, shoulder, and hip, as well as joint replacement surgeries of the knee and hip. Dr. Boyd has a regional practice for sports medicine and joint replacement; patients commute from numerous states in the Southeast to Oxford for Dr. Boyd’s arthroscopic knee and shoulder surgery as well as their computer-generated knee replacement or anterior hip replacement. Showcasing his true dedication to the field of Orthopaedics, Dr. Boyd holds a unique double-board certification in Orthopaedic Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine from the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

Dr. Boyd’s passion for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine is deeply rooted. He was a two-time All-SEC Linebacker and went on to sign with the Miami Dolphins of the NFL. Following professional football, Dr. Boyd studied at The University of Mississippi Medical School where he served as class president for all of his four years. An experienced resource for athletes and non-athletes alike, Dr. Boyd has treated patients associated with the NBA, NFL, World Cup Soccer, and numerous collegiate and high school athletic teams. Currently, Dr. Boyd serves as Orthopaedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Specialist for Ole Miss Athletic teams and Delta State University Athletics. Additionally, Dr. Boyd can be seen on the sidelines most Friday nights taking care of our area’s athletes at numerous high schools including, the Lafayette Commodores and Grenada Chargers.

Dr. Boyd completed his Orthopaedic residency at the University Of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio, training under some of the world’s leading authorities in the field of Orthopaedics and participated in original research projects which were presented at national and international meetings. In his final year of residency, Dr. Boyd was honored to be elected as the Chief Orthopaedic Resident. Dr. Boyd researched and participated in cutting-edge techniques that have now become common practice in the United States. During residency, he was the recipient of the SCROT Trauma Award, allowing him to take part in an international training program for Orthopaedic Trauma.

Dr. Boyd was selected as a Sports Medicine Fellow at the San Antonio Orthopaedic Institute, affording him the opportunity to learn from one of the pioneers of arthroscopic shoulder surgery, Dr. Steven Burkhart, author of Advanced Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery. During the fellowship, Dr. Boyd took part in instructing visiting surgeons from both the U.S. and other countries in the latest techniques in arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Furthermore, during his training, Dr. Boyd studied shoulder surgery under Dr. Charles Rockwood, editor of the most widely used orthopaedic trauma textbook as well as the leading shoulder surgery textbook. During this fellowship, Dr. Boyd was fortunate to be mentored by Dr. Jesse Delee, director of the Sports Medicine fellowship program where the most widely used sports medicine text, Delee and Drez’s Sports Medicine Principles and Practices, is authored. Under the direction of Dr. Delee, Dr. Boyd learned advanced arthroscopic treatments of sports medicine injuries and took part in the care of amateur and professional competitive athletes.

Dr. Boyd has continued this attitude of innovation in his private practice by being the first surgeon in the region to perform anterior hip replacements. Dr. Boyd’s extensive study of the latest arthritis treatments of the hip and knee to include partial and total joint replacement as well as less invasive reconstruction techniques, continues to play a leading role in his practice today. Dr. Boyd is a frequent lecturer at numerous Sports Medicine conferences.
